Matt Krumins Photography

At Matt Krumins Photography I take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. To ensure everyones safety and comfort on workshops I have imposed the following:

  • Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 4 participants (group size of 5 including myself).
  • Hand Sanitiser available at all times
  • Workshops locations are modified to avoid crowded areas.
  • Participants are actively asked to social distance in our safety briefing at the start of our workshop with reminders during our workshop if I believe distances are being breached.
  • Participants who have even mild cold or flu symptoms are not to attend. To assist with this I have removed the requirement for 7 days notice to reschedule to ensure you are not penalised for making the right judgement call to not attend.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss how I am handling these measures please contact me on 0402 812 805.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

with Matt Krumins Photography

CHANGE THE WAY YOU SHOOT

Achieve sharper details, crisper motion and a deeper story in your wildlife photographs… but without the jargon and ego. This workshop focuses on practical, real-world decision making with your settings, mastering your focus methods as well as building story into your compositions.

MASTER SETTINGS

Get a thorough understanding of the settings needed to capture compelling images. Get to know their trade-offs and how to balance your decisions.

SHARPER SHOTS

Get crisper details and make your photos come to life by mastering your lenses and focus modes.

TELL A STORY

Transform your images from photographs of 'animals' to images that evoke feelings and stories.

WORKSHOP DETAILS

Small groups = More Personalisation.

9am-12pm
Small groups to keep things personal
Includes zoo entry
Elliot Ave, Parkville (Meet at MAIN ENTRANCE)

ALL BRANDS ALL MODELS

Do you want a personalised approach specific to your camera? You’ve found it. With years of experience and thousands of workshop participants you’d be hard pressed to find a camera brand or model that I don’t know my way around.

WORKSHOP PLAN

1. DISCUSSION
Everyone has different experience in their photography and different expectations so the first item on our agenda is to gauge where everyone is at based on their individual camera, experience and goals in our workshop.
2. THEORY
Theory sounds awfully boring but not here. This session is packed with analogies, stories, discussion, laughs and of course the vital information around settings and techniques to make your wildlife photography shine.
3. SHOOT
Our heads now exploding with new information from our theory session it's time to start putting it all into practice to make sure it sticks. With an abundance of wildlife around for us to photograph this is where it all comes together.
4. SUPPORT
Following our workshop you will be invited to join our exclusive 'Matt's Mob' Facebook support group. This is probably the friendliest photography group on the internet with hundreds of like-minded people all wanting to keep the fun in photography.

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

You’ll need a camera with access to full manual settings including Aperture Priority & Shutter Priority mode. Please make sure you have a fully charged battery and space on your memory card.

Wildlife photography is generally best done with a telephoto lens. I recommend an equivalent of 300mm or more. If you’re on a crop sensor camera (not full frame) this means you would want something that is at least 200mm. If you’re not sure, give me a call on 0402 812 805.

If you have a monopod it can be a great opportunity to get to know this piece of gear. If not, no stress monopods can be useful but are not essential. Tripods are discouraged.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In photography we never stop learning so there is always something to take away no matter what your experience level. That said, this workshop delves into some pretty detailed topics and so I recommend having a good understanding of exposure compensation and basic camera function before taking this one on.

Melbourne can be a funny place when it comes to weather so regardless of the forecast I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as even on a sunny day Melbourne can show it’s unique ability to change on a dime! If we have minor drizzle or patchy showers we will be out shooting still as many parts of the zoo are undercover and as a bonus we will have less people to contend with!

If we do have significant forecast rain you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule. A judgement call will be made 5 days out from the workshop and a further assessment the day before.

My Wildlife Photography Workshop covers entry to Melbourne Zoo for the day and can also be contributed towards a full zoo membership at the end of the session. The workshop its self includes laminated quick reference cards for the settings and composition ideas covered.

Your workshop is always a small group giving you plenty of one-on-one instruction as well as personal attention relevant to your camera brand and model.

Also, I believe that photography concepts take practice and time so at the conclusion of your workshop you will be invited to an exclusive online support group on Facebook where you can continue to grow your photography alongside other Matt Krumins Photography Workshop participants!

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

"Attended the Advanced Wildlife Photography at the Melbourne Zoo with Matt and had a great experience. Matt's passion for photography is infectious. I gained more knowledge in the 3 hours spent with Matt than I have in a long time. Matt delivers easy to grasp concepts in an engaging and fun style. I had a ball and the laminated cards are very handy 👍"
